Meet the Mets
As the title up above says, there was a lot of focus on the bullpen this weekend. First, Ken Davidoff reports that the Mets haven't shut the door on a possible Jose Valverde signing. His stuff seems to have diminished but since it's late February, it seems like he'll make a lot less than expected.
Other bullpen highlights: Sidearming righty Greg Burke's new delivery has been a pleasant surprise. The Mets' bullpen is old. Jeurys Familia has a shot at a big league bullpen spot to open the season. There are also Q&A's with Bobby Parnell and LaTroy Hawkins.
ESPN's Sweetspot blog has an offseason report card for the Mets.
